Flying Trains!
“After cars go electric and autonomous, the next big disruption will be in airplanes,” says Maurice Ricci, French entrepreneur and CEO of Akka Technologies, in his “Link & Fly” pitch to Boeing.
Passengers would take a local train the size of an Airbus A320 to the airport, where deltoid wings would be attached for take-off. The detachable wings make turnover at airports faster and boarding closer to home easier. Cargo models will be autonomous.
It looks even cooler than it sounds (which is quieter than a commercial airliner).
